Chia Seed Almond Pudding

Refreshing and nutrient dense – what could be better than this summer pudding? I like to top this with fresh seasonal fruit. Mango slivers are always a favourite. Enjoy for breakfast, as a tasty snack, dessert or after a workout.

Directions
Take any large glass jar with a tight-fitting lid, add chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla, zest, sugar and almond slivers. Stir well to combine. Place in the refrigerator and after about 2 hours, stir again. Let sit overnight and your chia seeds will have absorbed all
of the liquid, leaving you with a tapioca-like pudding.

Serve chilled with slices of your favourite fresh fruit, or eat as is. This isn’t a terribly sweet pudding, so if you have more of a sweet tooth, you can up the coconut sugar by ½ tsp at a time until it suits your palate.

Ingredients
2 cups almond milk
1/2 cup of raw chia seeds
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Zest of 1 small lemon
3 tbsp of pure coconut
or cane sugar
3 tsp almond slivers
Pinch of salt
